On 24 and 25 September, Viparis will host the 2020 edition of AIPC’s annual conference, which is set to bring together event venue professionals from Europe and around the world. In light of the current global health and economic crisis, the goal is to work together to find timely solutions to address the sector’s future. For the very first time, the conference will be a hybrid one, offering both digital and in-person sessions so all AIPC members can take part in discussions.
The agenda will include meetings, round tables and panel discussions on various topics of interest to event site professionals. It will also feature a wide-ranging debate on how to emerge from the crisis with contributions from the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) and the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI). Discussions will draw on members’ experiences and expertise, but also on contributions by major sector stakeholders such as Mark Gallagher, Managing Director of Performance Insights, André Schneider, CEO of Aéroports de Genève, and Franck Gervais, CEO of the ACCOR group.
“We are honoured to host AIPC’s annual conference, and to bring together event venue professionals from many countries to share their experiences and jointly address many critical issues.” – Pablo Nakhlé Cerruti, CEO of Viparis.
